Soothing eczema relief this winter*

Moo Goo Eczema care review: Repair and protect your skin this winter
Like many sensitive skin sufferers, I am seldom prepared for winter's arrival! Along with it comes the barely habitable conditions aka unrelenting freezing drizzly rain, the chilblains, the dry, flaky skin and
 painful, cracked knuckles. In today's world we are so fortunate to have a huge array of products at our fingertips - however, many of these are likely to do more harm to very sensitive skin than calm it. 
Moo Goo Eczema care review: Repair and protect your skin this winter
I am so excited to be trialling more Moo Goo skincare, this time specifically designed to tackle irritated skin breakouts and being completely safe for babies, children and adults. Oscar is doubly prone to eczema, having inherited from both Mitch and me - tends to get it on his cheeks and chin! - and we've been getting on well with the Bubbly wash so far. It makes his skin so soft! I love that these products are designed with sensitive skin in mind, so I can jump on the skincare bandwagon with my fellow bloggers!
Moo Goo Eczema care review: Repair and protect your skin this winter
These particular spots are known as Dyshidrotic eczema, tiny fluid filled blisters, frogspawn-like in appearance, that cause itching and burning on the palms and fingers. They cause the affected areas to swell and at worst can make it impossible to write or perform any activity that requires a careful hand.
Moo Goo Eczema care review: Repair and protect your skin this winter
With my admittedly very mild break out of skin sores the Irritable Skin Balm quickly eased the irritation and I experienced no further itching or burning. Over the next few days, I alternated between both products and was impressed to see it clear up very quickly. Here are some further tips that help

. Stay away from cheap jewellery, especially kinds that may include nickel or turn your skin green!
. Expose the affected area to the air as much as possible
. Patch test with any new skincare products and try to wait 24-48 hours
. Keep hands dry after washing and avoid washing excessively

I also love how multipurpose they are, safe to use anywhere, from the feet to the face, and perfect for the whole family to use. I have only used these for a couple of days now - plus my eczema was very mild! - so I am excited to see if they will keep future outbreaks at bay and report back to you in a few months!

Not only do the cream and balm help to calm and soothe the eczema, they keep the area soft and hydrated, so the skin doesn't turn cracked and scaly while it heals. Both products seem so promising for the treatment of dry, sensitive, sore and chapped skin, I have definitely good first impressions!

  1. I remember suffering from really bad eczema two years ago. :(
    My skin was also too sensitive for most products, even the ones that were designed for sensitive skin. Although it's all cleared up now, I still wish I had known about this product sooner! Right now I use a rose baby oil for the late autumn and winter dryness. :)

    1. They are so annoying and uncomfortable, awful when you get a full outbreak! I've read that they are worse in the spring/hayfever season so I will definitely check back and review the products again around that time. Thank you so much Renee! :D ♡

  3. I use lots of hand creams in winter, I cannot leave the house and not take one in my bag. My hands get so dry I need to apply a hand cream all the time.
    Love your photos, so bright! x

  9. I suffered so badly from eczema as a child and still get an odd flare up here and there. I always used e45 but this looks great - anything to stop itching in its tracks!!

  10. I love the sound of this MooGoo range and the fact that it's multi-purpose. My face always feels extra sensitive in the winter, so it's nice to keep a good moisturiser at hand. I use Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion in the winter as it keeps my skin at bay. :)
